$11 Alarm Clock using MM and Hello-Lucy
Short video demostration
What can you do with an $11 netbook? I took the easy way out this time.
I made an alarm clock that is voice controlled and has pages of modules,
as well as the ability to hide and show individual modules. Set an alarm
and hide the modules. When the alarm sounds, “Page One” appears, along with
a button to click to reset the alarm clock.

I have one of these netbooks, can’t get it to turn on!
Really cool though!!!
OMG!!! I knew I forgot something!!!
Oh Well… I just got another one I’m gonna try it with…
I hope it is better than the Panasonic ToughBook CF-51 I’ve been using that I can’t get the mic to work very well.
My mics have all worked out of the box. What do you mean they don’t work very well?
the ToughBook is old… the touchpad doesn’t work, and I have no idea what is wrong with the mic…
I have to talk really loud for it to hear me. I tried a USB mic, and it’s the same. So, I’m guessing it has to do with the sound hardware of the laptop. I don’t have any problem with the USB on any of my other devices.
